Why do we have to keep changing back the clocks? Didn't that start in the old days and shouldn't we do without now? This is kind of annoying, to be switching back and forth.

Generally, the farm community hates daylight savings time. I know, I was one for years.

However, now that I am a city slicker, I love daylight savings time. That extra hour of daylight in the evening is great for BBQing, working in the yard, doing home projects, playing golf, playing with the kids, sports, etc. I wish we had DST year round.
